You Were Never Really Here

In Cinemas September 6

Film synopsis

Two of the greatest cinema artists of our time, director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and actor Joaquin Phoenix unite in this masterpiece about a missing teenage girl, a brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission, and the corrupt power and vengeance unleashed, which may lead to his awakening.


“The sheer power of artistic skill on the screen is striking and demands attention.” – Forbes

“Joaquin Phoenix is simply stupendous in a revenge thriller from the brilliant Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay that gets under your skin and makes it crawl. You won’t know what hit you.” Rolling Stone

“…a demanding film, but it’s not a reckless one. To watch it is to see a rigorous and intensely creative filmmaker at work.” Time Magazine
